Summer is the Season To…

Summer is sacred. No question about it. Here, top bloggers, chefs, and more share their must-happen summer tips and traditions.

Summer is the Season To

“Summer is the season to…

…bake pies. Growing up, my mom used to bake us all sorts of pies. Blueberry. Peach. Strawberry Rhubarb. We’d never eat them hot, though. After they came out of the oven, we’d let them cool off by an open window in the kitchen and then pop them in the fridge overnight. By breakfast we’d be ready for a slice: the perfect relief from the morning heat.”

Is Cinco de Mayo on your radar? It’s certainly on ours. (Can’t beat Mexican food.) In preparation for Sunday’s endless feasting, we’d been scouring the Internet for party-ready recipes.

That’s when we came across The Amateur Gourmet – the answer to our foodie dreams. Adam Roberts doesn’t mess around in the kitchen. Check out his super-comprehensive blog, mouthwatering recipes, gorgeous cookbook, and impressive accolades.

That is, of course, after you whip up a mean batch of Carnitas Tacos with Green Salsa and Pico de Gallo.

Our Sunday Supper: Mexican Night Boutique opens Sunday, May 5, at 11AM ET.
